Trauma Therapy for Women in Tennessee
Traumatic experiences can leave individuals with feelings of emotional and mental distress that are long lasting. Although most people will be faced with a traumatic event during their lifetime, many do not fully recover. The expert staff at Voyage is here to help those who have had these traumatic encounters.
What is Trauma?
Trauma is a natural response to a horrible event such as a close death, accident, severe injury, or assault. Trauma is an emotional response and can result in severe shock and/or complete denial of the preceding event. This can result in major depression, social withdrawal, a break from reality, and personality changes. If you or a loved one have experienced trauma, it may be beneficial to consider trauma therapy to help you through this difficult journey.

SIGNS OF A TRAUMATIC DISORDER
Stress-induced disorders differ from the brain’s normal response to trauma. After almost any traumatic event, individuals will experience at least one of the symptoms of PTSD. So what is the difference? It is normal to be fearful, have nightmares, and find it difficult to stop reflecting back on the event. However, if these feelings do not start to gradually get better, it may be time to seek help. In fact, many people with trauma-induced disordered will start to feel worse over time.
Post-traumatic stress disorders look different from person to person. Symptoms can come and go, or rise out of nowhere. While everyone has different experiences, trauma disorders include three main symptoms:
- Constant re-experiencing of the traumatic event. This symptom can include flashbacks, nightmares, and feelings of intense distress when reminded of the traumatic incident. Also, intense physical reactions can occur while re-experiencing the event including: rapid heart beat, loss of breath, nausea, sweating, and muscle tension.
- Ignoring any reminders of the trauma. Individuals suffering from a trauma disorder will often avoid activities, places, and thoughts that remind them of the incident. Additionally, they might have the inability to remember certain details regarding the traumatic event. If you or a loved one is feeling detached and emotionally numb, it might be time to seek professional help.
- Elevated anxiety and emotions. Often, this symptom will include insomnia, irritability, difficulty concentrating, and hyper-vigilance.
